Great to see the animals living together and not all of them behind small cages. They have small shows like the cheetah run where you can get some great pictures up close. There is a lot of walking and then a tram that takes you through the open part. We did the Roar and Snore camping and they had a special package to feed the giraffes on the trucks to get extra close. It is def something that takes a full day to see it all. If you are visiting I highly recommend the roar and snore, some tents even have beds! How many kids can say they spent the night at the zoo?
